3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: They Are Quite Pricy – Most of the nearby housing is more expensive than on campus. However, if you are willing to make a commute of 1-2 miles you can find some pretty good deals.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: It Just Like Most Places – There is a good variety of cultures and preferences represented in the Off-Campus Dining, however it is a little pricy.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Sports Are Decent – Football games are fun but students have to pay for tickets which would be ok if it didn't require four, often more, hours to get into the game. You also have to pay for Mens Basketball tickets. All other sports are free though which is nice, however they do not really have the same energy.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Dry Campus – There is a bad reputation for ASU regarding alcohol and drugs. I can find people to hang out with and not drink or I can choose to do that. It is not necessary.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Most of the guys I have met are physically attractive, but aren't necessarily smart. The ones that are smart are not very attractive. This is a hard thing to overcome. There have been a few that are both, but they are hard to find.

1 College Senior

Guys & Girls: No Connection – The people at this school aren't really the sort I would make friends with, but there are a few good people.

3 College Senior

Campus Quality: Profits Soar as Educational Experience Sinks – The University processes a lot of students. It's main goal is to turn out students with degrees at as high a profit as possible. The university still offers a wide variety of interesting programs, but the quality of the education the university provides decreases in correlation with its rising greed and useless fees. The school has significantly departed from its original charter to provide an affordable education to Arizona residents.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are a lot of options and everything is well kept.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Nothing Special – The financial aid department is difficult to work with.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Nice Variety – There are a number of choices within walking distance of ASU. The prices range from very inexpensive to very costly. You can find many ethnic options alongside classic American cuisine; fast food to trendy.

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: It's All Off Campus – The campus is pretty much dead after 8. Mill Avenue is close by though, so you can always just go there.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: It's College – It's decent, I don't see a lot of it, and what I see is legal drugs. People smoke a lot outside, and while you're not suppose to inside, they do. I remember there were several times where the fire alarms went off due to someone smoking in their room.

4 College Freshman

Weather: In the End, It's Still a Desert – Personally, I love the weather here. It's mild or cool most of the school year. But let's face it, as nice as the winters are, it's still a desert. Walking to class with 120 degree wether is never fun.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Mediocre at Best – While technically ok to live off campus, ASU makes it extremely difficult. It is mandatory that first year students stay on campus, and it's not cheep.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Campus is diverse but not overly diverse, however walking through campus, one can notice who is from Arizona and who is not.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Fairly Good – Most guys are very very friendly. Everyone is ready to get to know each other and make new friends!

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Psych offers a lot of different and exciting programs to their students. The Psychology professors are very knowledgeable and they are always available to talk before or after class or during their office hours.

1 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking at ASU is a huge pain. Permits are expensive and ASU police are constantly looking for metered parkers to ticket.

4 College Freshman

Majors: Great Teachers – workload is fair. not too much, not too little. The teachers are pretty experienced and down to earth

3 College Freshman

Majors: How I Really Feel.. to b honest, it is a great major and if you make it all the way, there are many benefits! but it seems like many wont make it all the way or will not make it to what they expect

5 College Freshman

Majors: Air Traffic Control – it is an interesting major, given that is very specific.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Depends on the Dorms – PV and the other dorms in that area tend to be isolated from the rest of campus. Also from what I hear PVs dorms are not that great and it takes a lot to get vistors in. Hassayampa is fairly decent with vistors as long as you are with them (if they are on there own they can get stuck because they do not have access). The rooms are decent. I do not know that much about the dorms in the middle of campus. The Barrett dorms are nice and it is easy to have visitors. My floor became very close and most floors tend to be social to varying degrees.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Good If Over 21 or Able to Commute – There are kickbacks in the dorms with friends every so often, they are fun but lack the excitement of parties. The parties are off campus and the tends to be covers for guys, not so much for girls. They can be a pain to get to if you dont have a designated driver, but you can always take a cab. There are very few 18 and over clubs and not particularly close by. There are a lot of bars and clubs near by but those are only for 21 and over.

4 College Junior

Technology: Barrett Honors College Experience – We have our own computer labs at Barrett. Speed is good, wireless access all over campus, still like having my own machine though.

4 College Junior

Local Area: Great City! So much to do, concerts, museums, amazing scenery as well as lots to do on campus.

Arizona State is like no other university in the country. With a large, vibrant, and exciting student body that truly makes the campus unique, there is no arguing that ASU is by any means a boring place to be for the next four years of your life. As soon as you step onto ASU's campus, you will feel the immense amount of positive and exciting energy that gives you sense of belonging. Even though there are so many students around campus, you will be sure to find a niche to call your own. College is the time to find yourself and truly learn who you are as you prepare for the real world. ASU provides the perfect environment to challenge you to make "adult" decisions, and you won't always, but by the end of it all, you will mature into a dedicated individual!

Even though students will struggle with all-nighters, sports practice, parking tickets, and trying to recover from a great night, many of them couldn't ask for anything else. There will be times that you are drowning in homework and studying, but by the end of it all, you will look back and laugh. Your peers help you get through the tough times and make those social outings even more fun. ASU knows how to party hard, but when it comes to crunch time, we pull it off well. The kids here know how to have a great time, the nightlife and social settings are extremely fun, the academics are quite challenging—especially when you apply yourself and take it seriously—but most importantly, students will leave prepared for post-graduation and taking on the world. ASU is a fantastic place to meet new people and a great way to experience life in the great southwest. But don't take my word for it—come on out and experience it for yourself!
